Meeting other teens during trip to Italy

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, I've read through many great suggestions re places and activities of interest for teens and I will research those further. My 15 yo son and I are traveling with a small group of friends for 1st 2 weeks of 3 week trip. We fly in and out of rome 6/14-7/6. We will be starting in Assisi and walking along Francis of Assisi's route for a week than staying put for a week in Spoleto. We will probably take at least one day trip to rome on the train. There will be a couple cars and I expect we'll make some excellent day trips. For our week on our own I'm considering water based ( and I will read more about the lago d Garda and the Etruscan coast) or city based with day trips to water. I would love a farmstay but my traveling companion would only appreciate the delicious food so this wouldn't be the best for him. Best for him would be a place where we could settle for the week (or maybe it's 2 places for 1/2 week ea but I'm a big fan of not moving around too much with kid travelers) where he could get to know other teens...locals, travelers, ex pats all could be fun. Anybody have ideas on where we could stay that would make it more likely that he would connect with other teens? He is a very easy socially. Suggestions on specific lodging or locations much appreciated. Moderate priced would be our max. Thanks!
